- Wedding: May 2013
Hi everyone! I’m new to the boards but have been addicted reading for awhile =) We’re still figuring out many details but I’ll play anyway. It’s great to see everyone’s progress.
Wedding Date: June 1, 2013
Engagement Length: 16 months
Colors: Sea blue, sea green, sand, light coral
Theme: Beach and travel
Wedding Party(#s): 6 BMs (1 or 2 of them as MOH), 5 or 6 Groomsmen (2 Best Men)
Ceremony (where, time): 4 or 4:30 pm. We are hoping for Sunset Cliffs which is on the ocean in San Diego. Wish us luck as they only start reserving ~1 year in advance!
Reception (where, time): Admiral Kidd Club 6 pm
Dress Style: Custom made inspired by Lela Rose’s The Woods, Watters’ Diana, Claire Pettibone’s Sky Between the Branches. Essentially ivory satin sweetheart fitted a-line with lace neckline and dramatic lace back (I love beautiful backs!).
Hair/Makeup (Pro/DYI): Pro hair. Pro make-up. Need to find vendors!
Honeymoon Location: Leaving it up to Fiance =) Since we’ll be living in Hawaii right before our wedding, we’re deciding to do the complete opposite of a tropical paradise. Ideas include Kennebunkport, Maine and Alaska.
Flowers: No clue… I’m planning to do DIY and will do a trial run this weekend with whatever’s in season at Whole Foods or the farmer’s market. Hopefully succulents are affordable!
First Dance Song: We’re still deciding. For our ceremony songs, we’ll have an accoustic guitarist play instrumental How Deep is Your Love, Forever by the Beach Boys, and not sure about the recessional.
Centerpieces: Seascape inspired with coral, seashells, flowers, succulents, and candlelight
Cake Flavour: TBD
Favours: Flavored sea salts to go with our beach theme 😉
Bachelorrete (when/what): Spring 2013. BMs have thrown out the idea of renting a beautiful beach house in northern CA or a ski cabin in CO.
